New WRAL Documentary: Transformed Airs Thursday, June 9 at 7 p.m.
What does it mean to be transgender? Is it a choice? Where can transgender persons get help? The new WRAL Documentary “Transformed” gives an eye-opening look at what it’s like to be a transgender person in North Carolina. The documentary, hosted by WRAL News anchor David Crabtree, airs Thursday, June 9 at 7 p.m.
Depression, fear and rejection are common among transgender persons.
“I just felt like I had no hope. I was just very confused and I was very destitute…and very depressed,” says E.J. Greaves, a transgender man featured in the documentary.
“Transformed” follows Greaves and a transgender woman, showing their everyday challenges. We also meet a transgender teenager and his family. They discuss the relief, stress and hard work that comes with transitioning, and they talk about the impact of House Bill 2 on their lives.
